Montana brand frozen strawberries recalled by Adonis
A recall has been issued for one-kilogram bags of Montana brand frozen strawberries sold by the Adonis Group in Quebec and Ontario, due to possible contamination with hepatitis A.
The objective of the present study was to investigate the seroprevalence of HAV and HEV in Polish blood donors (BDs). One hundred and ten randomly selected healthy BDs, living in Wielkopolska Region were tested for anti-HAV IgG and anti-HEV IgG with commercial assays. The seroprevalence of anti-HAV was 11.8%; anti-HEV were detected in 60.9% of BDs (p

ConclusionsOur findings highlight the potential role of personalized patient education tools and public-private partnerships to communicate about preventive care. Getting patients to act on these recommendations was more difficult.
In conclusion, this study demonstrated a high rate of anti-HAV positivity in the short term after single-dose hepatitis A vaccination in the population investigated. Moreover, the DBS was shown to be a reliable tool for detecting anti-HAV antibodies.
We present a case of a 65-year-old male with jaundice and without hepatitis A, B, or C. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography showed a patent biliary tract. Liver pathology revealed no malignancy but showed bile stasis compatible with cholestatic hepatitis. The patient's jaundice persisted for 7 weeks, and at the same time, adrenal insufficiency was diagnosed. Adrenal insufficiency was recovered with glucocorticoid therapy, and the jaundice was cured.

We report an adult case of ACLF due acute viral hepatitis related to hepatitis A virus infection superimposed on nonalcoholic steatohepatitis without cirrhosis.
This study aimed to differentiate DIAIH from AIH by comparing the biochemical changes, histological features, and frequencies of CD4+Foxp3+CD25+/− regulatory T cells (Tregs) in liver tissues or peripheral blood lymphocytes.MethodsA total of 15 DIAIH patients and 24 AIH patients who underwent liver biopsies at initial presentation were enrolled in this study. The liver histological changes were assessed by HE staining. The phenotypic recognition and distribution of CD4+Foxp3+CD25+/− Tregs in liver tissues were evaluated by single/double immunostains in serial sections. The CD4+Foxp3+CD25+/− Tregs in periph...

A 36 years-old woman, at 29 weeks of gestation, presented with itchiness and jaundice since a week. On clinical examination she was apyrexial and frankly icteric. Laboratory data showed evidence of acute hepatitis. A complete work-up was made excluding viral he...
